    <p>Below is the list of features that we plan to implement in the
    future. They are divided into two sections: ones that will
    likely appear in the forthcoming releases and those that we
    have no definite time-line for. Send an email to
    <a href="mailto:xsd-users@codesynthesis.com">xsd-users@codesynthesis.com</a>
    if you are interested in a particular feature or would like to suggest
    one.</p>

    <h1>Forthcoming Releases</h1>

    <h2>C++/Serializer</h2>

    <ul class="multiline">
      <li>New mapping that will support event-driven XML serialization.</li>
    </ul>

    <h2>C++/Hybrid</h2>

    <ul class="multiline">
      <li>New mapping that will support hybrid, event-driven/in-memory
          XML processing.</li>
    </ul>

    <h1>No Definite Time-line</h1>

    <h2>IDL</h2>

    <ul class="multiline">
      <li>New mapping that will produce CORBA IDL from XML Schema.</li>
    </ul>

    <h2>IDL/C++</h2>

    <ul class="multiline">
      <li>New co-mapping that will produce C++ parsing/serialization
          code for the C++ types produced from CORBA IDL.</li>
    </ul>

    <h2>C++/Tree</h2>

     <ul class="multiline">
      <li>Mapping for <code>xsd:unique</code>, <code>xsd:key</code>,
          and <code>xsd:keyref</code>.</li>

      <li>Option to select between <code>std::vector</code> and
          <code>std::list</code> as an underlying sequence type.</li>

      <li>Special attribute in XML Schema definition that would
          instruct code generators to use a different container type
          such as associative containers (<code>std::set</code> and
          <code>std::multiset</code>). This will allow you to
          construct a light-weight, object-oriented database with XML Schema
          as a specification language and XML as an underlying
          representation.
      </li>

      <li>Make dependency generator.</li>

      <li>Generate typedef instead of inheritance for some cases of
          inheritance from fundamental types.</li>

      <li>Option to suppress the generation of enum mapping.</li>

      <li>Map arbitrary-length integers to a suitable user-defined types.</li>

      <li>Option to map <code>xsd:long</code> to C++ <code>long</code> instead
          of <code>long long</code> for 64-bit architectures (can be achieved
          now with --custom-type).</li>
    </ul>
